As I slow down to a stop to honor the little flashing stop sign that swings out when the bus stops to pick up/drop off children my attention is drawn to the cow field to my left.
Right there in front of all those little children on the bus was Bessie the cow getting mounted by Fred (also a cow). My jaw dropped open in a mixture of shock and embarrassment. I don't know why I was embarrassed, they are neither my cows nor my children but I was horrified! Oh, the lessons you learn on the way to school.
It somewhat reminded me of this scene from Napoleon Dynamite.
*I do not know what these cow's names really are...but Bessie and Fred sounded like such suitable names for cattle, I just couldn't resist.
